Nick Filis is an ambitious singer/songwriter with plans to influence the ever-changing music industry with his blend of pop and acoustic rock. Playing guitar and singing for a combined 21 years, he has enjoyed developing his unique style through performing for many crowds.
Armed with a band of fellow university music students, Nick recently released his 5 Track EP called ‘For You & Me’. With a youthful confidence, the EP moves from acoustic pop to funk disco all the way back around again as Nick explores the genres that have inspired him.
Nick’s music has been inspired by artists such as Vance Joy, Thirsty Merc and The Temper Trap. This is shown through his exciting arrangements of popular songs into something markedly different to its original form. Playing a variety of covers and originals, Nick regularly performs at venues and functions around Newcastle including places such as Hope Estate, Merewether Surf Club, MRAG etc.

“Matt’s value doesn’t purely lie in his technical mastery of audio engineering, nor his ability to coax out killer performances and nor does it lie within his ability to finetune arrangements. The area in which Matt’s value truly shines through is his ability to create a comfortable, creative environment where your musical ideas can flourish into a fully-fledged professional product at a reasonable price.
I’ve worked with Matt on two separate occasions and his ability to remain flexible and provide as much or as little support as needed has made the creative process incredibly enjoyable each time. These experiences have led me to view Matt as not only an incredibly talented musician, producer and engineer but also a friend I look forward to working with again.”
